QUESION: Women make up 49% of the global workforce. What do you believe is the most important issue facing women in the workplace today and why?

QUESION: Sexual harassment has been at the forefront of recent headlines. Why is it important for men and women to work together in tackling this issue?

ANSWER: "Sexual harassment is a form of abuse and no abuse should be tolerated, whether in the workplace or in society. I believe that men and women should come together and be professional, leave this act alone, and anything that happens such as sexual harassment, should be taken into the law and should be dealt with."


Miss Colombia - Laura Gonzalez

ANSWER: "I’ve never been a victim or a victim or family member of terrorism. I cannot really explain how it feels to be one of them. But if i had the opportunity to speak to a child, i would tell him that, please your generation and my generation, we cannot be full of weapons. Please, more books, more culture, more friendships, and more love." 



QUESION: What quality in yourself are you most proud of, and how would you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe?

Miss Jamaica - Davina Bennett

I am a founder of a foundation that spreads awareness for the deaf community and this platform is such a great platform to just let persons know that these persons need opportunities and need equal opportunities like those in society. And so the Miss Universe competition will be the platform for me to use this foundation to spread awareness for all the deaf people around."

Miss Colombia - Laura Gonzalez

ANSWER: "I am incredibly passionate about everything I do. With compassion, I have discipline. With compassion, I put my whole self into every situation that I work at. I’ve done this as an actress, I’ve done this as a Colombian, and I do not doubt that I will do this as Miss Universe."


Miss South Africa - Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

ANSWER: "As Miss Universe you have to be confident in who you are as an individual.
